Birthday Fishes and a Touch of Glitter

#Lifechangingblenderbrushes #picketfencestudios #stencil

Hello PFS friends! It's Lisa Henke here and in honor of my oldest son turning 18 today (yes I said 18! How in the heck did that happen??) I wanted to share a birthday card. I layered up some stamps and added a bit of glitter. Let's look. 

I joke that it is birthday season in our house, but it's no joke. We legit, celebrate 8 birthdays over the next month. So I love to have my birthday card stash going strong. Oh, and all the birthdays are for the males, too. Soooo, I don't know about you but I find it a bit more challenging to make masculine birthday cards. I used the One Year Older stamp set today, as I think fish work great for guys.   

I started this card with the school of fish image from the One Year Older set. I did a little rock and roll technique with three ink colors to create some color variance. I then layered on the Polka Dots stencil and blended on some light blue ink using a Life Changing Blender brush. I picked one of the larger sizes to make the task go quicker. 

Next I stamped out a single fish from the set with Intense Black ink and used my copics to color him up.  I used the One Year Older dies to cut him out and added him to the card front with some foam dimensionals. I then layered on some bubbles in black. 

I love adding just a touch of sparkle, even to cards for guys, and using a strip of glitter paper in gold, is a simple way to do this without going over the top. With all the ink layering and dimension of the fish, I kept the sentiment simple and just used the Happy Birthday greeting from One Year Older. Plus I love the linear look of the stamp. I layered the finished panel onto Midnight card stock and added it to a Mist card base.

Thanks for stopping by today. See you soon and have a great day. 
Hugs, Lisa
